NEW UV Tests on Highline Webbing

2024-05-23T13:17:00+02:00

Effects of UV on breaking strength of polyamide and polyester highline webbing Members of the ISA Safety Commission have performed comparative two year degradation tests of some commonly used webbing materials used in  highlining . These tests were performed at extreme weather conditions in a high alpine environment to evaluate the highline webbing safety standard ISA:41 and to provide further data for evaluating highline webbing lifetime around the globe. The high-altitude Jungfraujoch research station offers a perfect venue for installing an array of frames with different webbing samples for a long-term, combined weathering and solar radiation study.

Cyclic Loading Weblocks #2

2021-07-08T08:13:53+02:00

Second comparative weblock cyclic loading tests We tested different webbing lockers to gain insight into fatigue behaviour of weblocks and evaluate the weblock safety standard ISA:51. The ISA Safety Commission did this extensive work in collaboration with the University of Lucerne, department of Engineering and Architecture. The second set of cyclic loading tests have finished and you can find the results in our publication here! Weblock design and material choice have been the focus of many discussions in the slackline community and these tests can finally shine a little more light onto this topic. It appears that most weblocks are [...]
